Preconvention activities and meetings will kick off Wednesday afternoon, June 19, with committee and policy development meetings and an affiliate council meeting. Wednesday evening will host a welcome reception with appetizers, drinks, and early registration check-in and trade show access.

On Thursday, June 20, and Friday, June 21, attendees will hear presentations on current hot-button issues and reforms, legislative updates, and more from numerous industry speakers and government officials.

Confirmed convention speakers thus far include international journalist Alex Newman, U.S. Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-WY), Department of Agriculture Senior Advisor for Fair and Competitive Markets Andy Green, USDA Farm Service Agency Administrator Zach Ducheneaux, and Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef expert Tracy Hunt. A full convention agenda will be released at a later date.
